AnywhereCD Closing It's Doors
From our front-page news:
This is one of those stories that comes as absolutely no surprise. AnywhereCD had good intentions, though. They sold you a music CD and also allowed you to download the MP3s of all of the songs on the album right away, so that you could listen while you wait for the actual hard-copy to hit your door. I am not sure who this type of service would really appeal to, but what killed it was the lack of overall support. If you want some music on the cheap, they are having an "everything must go" sale, with all CD's priced at $7.It probably didn't help that the site was ugly, difficult to navigate and lacked total selection. If the site had a lot more planning and a better thought process behind it, it might have actually done well.
It would still take one incredible service to hold me back from doing things the old way and just purchasing the CD and ripping it myself.
